Happy Spring!

  • Throughout the month of March, our district celebrated and recognized many students and their art at our annual Afternoon of the Arts. Their art will be displayed at the Rocky Mount Mills in May. A special thanks to the Mills for their support.

  • In March, we also celebrated Women’s History Month which highlights and celebrates the contributions of women in American History and Society. March 2nd was Read Across America Day in which many of our staff read to students to celebrate the privilege of being able to read and to emphasize the importance of reading.

February is now upon us and I would like to share a few important milestones and celebrations for the district.

I would like to welcome Mr. Jeff White to the Nash family as he becomes the new principal at Northern Nash High School. Tim Mudd, a current principal, has accepted the new role at Parker Middle School. Kimberly Newkirk, a former Assistant Principal has accepted the role of Principal at Baskerville Elementary School. 

Brian Hopkins, the former principal at Northern Nash High School is now the Director of transportation. 

Congratulations to these leaders.

In February, We celebrate the past and present accomplishments of African Americans and the impact and influence they have had on the United States of America while also acknowledging the implications of the past. 

We also are celebrating Career and Technical Education Month. Our schools continue to offer pathways that stir our students' interest and career options. Congratulations to our dedicated CTE staff who continuously provide career opportunities to our students.

We also celebrate our school bus drivers during National Bus Drivers week. These drivers will be celebrated with a drive thru lunch catered by the transportation staff. These drivers play an integral role in the movement of our students on a daily basis. Thank you for your commitment to students.

High Expectations for ALL

We appreciate your continued support.
